Where’s the setting for…?

There’s a lot to like in Windows 10, but some days it’s hard to find what I’m looking for, especially a setting. I think eventually Microsoft will to do away with Control Panel completely and dump everything into the Settings app instead. In the meantime, it’s a little like living out of a suitcase: stuff is scattered around everywhere.

News to me!

I learned some new things recently, and remembered something I’d forgotten. YouTube has keyboard shortcuts. You can recover from a too-aggressive Google Contacts clear out. Windows Update broke Internet Explorer. Again. But you can fix that. Or you can use a decent browser.

Modern versions of Windows, especially Windows 10, really want you to use a password. Each week as I set up or repair computers I encounter people who believe the password requirement exists only to annoy them. It does not. It exists to protect your information from people who can damage or erase it (deliberately or by accident), or steal it.
